Basket: There are five different Hebrew words so rendered in the Authorized Version:

1. A basket (Heb. sal, a twig or osier) for holding bread (Genesis 40:16)

(Exodus 29:3,23; Leviticus 8:2,26,31; Numbers 6:15,17,19) Sometimes baskets were made of twigs peeled; their manufacture was a recognized trade among the Hebrews.

2. That used (Heb. salsilloth') in gathering grapes (Jeremiah 6:9)

3. That in which the first fruits of the harvest were presented, Heb. tene, (Deuteronomy 26:2,4) It was also used for household purposes. In form it tapered downwards like that called corbis by the Romans.

4. A basket (Heb. kelub) having a lid, resembling a bird-cage. It was made of leaves or rushes. The name is also applied to fruit-baskets (Amos 8:1,2)

5. A basket (Heb. dud) for carrying figs (Jeremiah 24:2) also clay to the brick-yard (R.V.,) (Psalms 81:6) and bulky articles (2 Kings 10:7) This word is also rendered in the Authorized Version "kettle"

(1 Samuel 2:14) "caldron" (2 Chronicles 35:13) "seething-pot" (Job 41:20) In the New Testament mention is made of the basket (Gr. kophinos, small "wicker-basket") for the "fragments" in the miracle recorded (Mark 6:43) and in that recorded (Matthew 15:37) (Gr. spuris, large "rope-basket"); also of the basket in which Paul escaped (Acts 9:25) Gr. spuris; (2 Corinthians 11:33) Gr. sargane, "basket of plaited cords".
